European Curriculum for the Family & Community Nurse

Project duration: 01 January 2018 until 31 May 2022
Funding: Erasmus+


Starting from existing research evidence and results of ongoing EU Projects, a Professional Profile (PP) for FCN will be defined, as the EU benchmark for VET of FCN. The competence-based PP will be the baseline for the definition of a European, innovative, learning outcome-oriented modular VET Curriculum for FCN.

What is the target group of the project?

  • Nurses working in primary care
  • Patients and their relatives
  • Vocational training providers
  • Public and private health care organisations/institutions
  • Vocational teachers and trainers in the field of nursing
  • Professional associations


  • ­To increase the specialization level of nurses working in PHC Family and Community Nursing skills; ­
  • To foster the development of FCN curricula referring to a formalized EU profile based on WHO and EU politics recommendations; ­
  • To enhance the shift from the old PHC model to the new healthcare models centred on Public Health Care
